Blazeguard receives load limit certification from Progressive Engineering

Barrier Technology, Inc. is excited to announce the results of a multi-year test program culminating with the allowable load limits for Blazeguard Fire-Rated Panels.

One of the most significant results is our most common Blazeguard panel, consisting of 7/16" OSB substrate along with our patented Pyrotite formula, will now be marketed as 15/32" OSB Blazeguard. The load limits on this Blazeguard panel exceed raw 15/32" plywood and OSB panels. By utilizing the thinner substrate, Barrier is able to offer a very price competitive solution to fire code/strength requirements.

Architects and engineers will find the load allowances for Blazeguard in most cases will exceed their design requirements. Click here to review these new load limits.
